Emergency children’s Shelters

Operating the Valley’s only Emergency Children’s Shelters in Mesa and Phoenix for children birth to 8.

Children are admitted due to neglect, abandonment, abuse and parental incarceration. Children are placed by the Department of Child Safety (DCS) or by families when parents are unable to care for their children.

All children in our shelters receive health and dental care, social, behavioral and educational support.

On the day our foster children came to us, we were presented with a photo album full of pictures and memories from their life at Child Crisis Arizona. This has been such a treasure for the kids and our family as we have pictures of when they were younger we would have no other way. How blessed we feel that these kids had such good care and a start to long-term healing from Child Crisis Arizona.
